Hello there people of the J-pouch and pre-post surgery / non-surgery world. My name is Eric, and I have had 5 surgeries for Colitis. I almost died. Now I’m both a high school English teacher and a professor, and sometimes my students make me wish I had passed away (just kidding). Just now I finally [...]
Hi All, Recently little jpouch.net was acknowledged by www.healthline.com as one of 11 top Crohn’s blogs on the internet – how exciting! Check us out along with the other great blogs/websites.
If you are dealing with loss, I wish you healing, and if I can help, by listening, by offering advice, e-mail me. If you need to talk about how IBD/j-pouch surgery is affecting your life, respond to this post-let’s get more discussion going! This website is a blessing. It’s something for which I am eternally grateful. Thanks to Mark & Megan for taking the initiative to create something to connect and assist others who have or are experiencing what they have experienced. And, let’s all take a moment to honor those we’ve lost, and to honor ourselves for being survivors.

Well, this is one of those days that I come here to post and I wish I had a positive, uplifting one for you…perhaps this will turn out to be just that. Today, I was fired from my job because of my inability to come to work regularly because of my disease. Now, my employer [...]
I think we’ve all been at points of struggle with these diseases where we felt hopeless. For most of us, the J Pouch operation gives us our lives back. It gives us an opportunity to live it. It gives us an opportunity to hope. I have done volunteer work for the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation [...]
Not sure what’s going on here, but for the past two years, I’ve had a Crohn’s flare over the New Year’s holiday. Perhaps it’s related to stress from the holidays. Either way, it’s time to make a change. Bahamas next year! Does anyone else notice this phenomenon? Things are going totally great, then all the [...]
There’s that great line in the bible (or the Byrds song, whichever you prefer), “a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance.” Prior to my diagnosis of UC and, subsequently, Crohn’s, I was a devoted and passionate dancer. It was my “thing.” It was also [...]
